obama was elected president. but today was the day that the obama administration made the single biggest play to define what comes next. today, he nominated chuck hagel, in doing, he nominated the first vietnam veteran. >> he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that is something we only do when it is absolutely necessary. my frame of reference, he has said, is geared to the guy at the bottom who is doing the fighting and the dying. with chuck, our troops will always know just like sergeant hagel was there for his own brother, secretary hagel will be there for you. and finally, chuck represents the bipartisan tradition that we need more of in washington. for his independence, and commitment to consensus, he has earned the respect of national security and military leaders, republicans and democrats, including me. >> hagel will be the third republican secretary of defense appointed by the last two democratic presidents. william cohen, and bob gates, re-appointed by president obama in 2009. and chuck hagel is a republican senator from nebraska. th

in that case why hasn't the obama administration done more to help achieve that? i think the answer is because the obama administration is still desperate to find a way to negotiate with iran over the nuclear weapons program. i know if we were to get involved in the conflict against sa assad there would be no way the iranians would negotiate. >> what can the administration do? >> i don't think there's much they can do as long as they are not willing to take on russia and iran. the reset button has worked out well as we can see here. the administration is hosted by fat tar. >> good to see you. seems our fighting with continue with assad in place. >>> eric, thanks. there are growing concerns the deadly flu outbreak is sweeping across the country and there is high demand causing vaccine shortages not to worry, though. we will have all of the tips you need on the best way to protect yourself. police confronted suspected gunman inside a movie theater. tell you what happened when we come back. caring for their lives and lives of others one of the officers fired at the suspect striking the suspect. h
to be the best of the best operations according to both shell and the obama administration, and it turned out to be no match for the arctic. one of my colleagues put it quite well earlier today when he was talking about this can't be another paper exercise. they have to really dig into what happened here, and the secretary salazar said he didn't want to pre-suppose any inclusionsconclusions but it's hard to cool to any conclusion but that shell screwed up, and the arctic is no match for the technology they'll put up there. >> cenk: the arctic sounds like to "the young turks" too strong. i'm skeptical about the administration because i've seen when they've reallowed drilling in the gulf coast. well, the safety precautions you know, it's a work in progress. that makes me really concerned. is my concern about the obama administration in this realm justified or not justified. >> totally justified. shell has a lot of egg on their face right now. but the fact of the matter is the obama administration pretty much okayed this operation. you look at what shell is trying to do. the whole process is a d
in the obama administration. >> senator kerrey, you have been in politics all these years. what is the vehemence about? is it the sense he's just too much to the left of the right wing? what is the new standard for middle east politics in being secretary of defense for the united states? >> well, that's a good question. i think it's going to be proven in his testimony that he's a very strong supporter of the united states being a strong ally of israel. i mean, that's really the bottom line. are you willing to be an ally of israel, yes or no, and he's going to answer emphatically yes. his votes and his record confirm that. does he have disagreements from time to time with the prime minister of israel? the answer is yes. but, you know, i have disagreements from time to time with the president of the united states but that doesn't mean i don't support the united states of america. so, i mean, i think the representations that he's going to be terrible for israel i just think is wrong. and i think when he gets before the armed services committee, i think he's going to press the ameri
the obama administration was going to be like on this score. there was a u.s. drone strike in pakistan roughly every three days in 2010. 9 new america foundation tracks these things and their record shows it was an unprecedented spike in terms of how frequently we were killing people in pakistan using this particular method of killing people even though pakistan is supposedly not a war zone for us, at least not more than anywhere else in the world. interestingly, though, in 2013 it dropped off. in 2011 we launched from dropping drone strikes in pakistan roughly every three days to launching them on average every five days. then in 2012 it dropped off even further. we were launching a drone strike in pakistan about every seven or eight days as of 2012. well, how is this year shaping up? it is january 10th. so so far there have only been ten days in 2013. of those ten days in 2013 so far we have launched a drone strike in pakistan on seven out of those ten days. now, maybe that is an aberration. maybe those are the only seven we will have this year and by the end of the year our average
times progressives giving that withdrawal statement during the obama administration. i would be a distraction, et cetera. for a conservative to do it. wow! who are these legendary progressives who can get president obama to listen to them. as you can see from the presidential inaugural committee, they have listened in deed. if there's one progressive group that gets the job done, it is gay rights activists. god bless their heart. matt joins us in studio. there's a lot to discuss. how in the world does the gay rights community get so many successes politically? >> i think in this instance in particular, you saw the obama administration's desire not to have rick warren part two. that plagued him for weeks. weeks and weeks. and knowing how well the lbgt movement worked for the obama reelection campaign, there's no way they were interested in messing this up. there's a bottom line. lgbt helped get obama reelected and he knows that. >> cenk: i think you've hit on it exactly. that so how did they get him reelected? the lgbt community is strong, but not a high percentage of the vote
fast track for a little while. >> the obama administration pushing back after a picture taken in the oval office, this image by the photographer was featured on the front page yesterday of the "new york times." a group of men meeting with president. with top positions at the state, defense and treasury departments all offered recently to males, jay carney was asked about the gender issue. >> janet napolitano is secretary of home land security. this president has appointed, has made two appointments to the supreme court, both of them women and i think his commitment -- >> do you think it's an unfair charge? >> i think the record speaks for itself. >> the white house responded by posting a photo online featuring a more diverse crowd. the highest women in george w. bush's cabinet 24%. bill clinton has both of them beat. these numbers don't include female presidential advisers. >>> in health news, one of the worst flu outbreaks in years getting worse. check this map out, showing the extent of the problem, all of the states colored in red are reporting quote widespread flu activity
. according to the obama administration the rate of increase in healthcare spending went up 3.9% in 2011. a mall amount. it's the same increase that we saw in 2009 and 2010. for the record those are the lowest up ticks in more than half a century. pretty good. now for the bad news. anthem blue cross wants to hike their premiums by 26%. insurers in florida and ohio have already increased patients' rates by 20%. how is this happening and what can be done to stop it? we're going to put those questions to dave jones, who is leading the charge against the wild rate hikes that the insurance companies are planning. he's coming to us from sacramento. dave welcome inside "the war room." >> a pleasure to be with you jennifer. >> jennifer: tell us for people who have not been following this, why are these rate hikes happening in some states and not in others? >> the problem in california and other states is that there is nothing in the affordable care act or in state law that gives the insurance regulator the authority to reject excessive health insurance or hmo rate hikes. that's a glaring loophol
in washington continues to turn. and cabinet secretary has resigned out of the obama administration. who was it? well tell you in just a few moments. first, we'll go to out to los angeles, our current news update with lisa ferguson. >> hey peter. good morning bill. good morning everyone. more gun debate as vice president joe biden takes on a new round of meetings along with attorney general eric holder. first they'll speak with wildlife and sporting groups at 11:45 this morning. on to gun owner's groups including the nra and representatives from the entertainment industry this evening. kathleen sebelius wills attend some of the meetings. it is a big step for president obama's new gun violence task force launched in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary. but it did not necessarily leave many with high expectations. businesses that sell a lot of guns like walmart will also be in on some meetings. those groups are more likely to be influenced by the nra since they're making a big profit off those firearms. and they do not want to appear too entrenched in the white house's anti-gun push
. we need to close the gun show loophole. there are certain things the obama administration could do on the mental health front and enforcing existing laws when it comes to tracking guns through the computer system, that was set up we have to come together. i think it's one of those enough is enough moments. >>> don't miss "the ed show" weeknights at 8:00 eastern on msnbc, the place for politics. >>> as president obama prepares for a visit by afghan president hamid karzai, the white house said for the first time it's possible that no american troops will remain in afghanistan after 2014. a so-called zero option that would remove all u.s. troops by the end of next year would be be considered according to deputy security adviser benjamin rhodes. "the washington posts" some are pushing for and arguing that a smaller force would be the best way to end the costly unpopular war. >>> a military judge has refused to toss out charges against army private bradley manning who is accused of providing classified documents to wikileaks, but she is reducing any prison sentence that he may receive.
an unimportant factor but the obama administration is reaching out to jewish groups to get his nomination. do you think statements related to israel are going to pose a problem for him? >> i don't know. i think it will cause some problems yes. it will probably lose him some votes, but i have been under the spotlight a lot less in my life than you have or senator hagel and i have had things come out not quite right, and the question is whether he would have israel's back as defense secretary. and i would like to hear some details on if he would. i think israel does need to rethink it's settlements policy but he would not have a big role in those decisions anyway. he has to help israel's military be strong enough to defend their security. >> jennifer: there was another important nomination today which was john brennan being nominated to head the cia. your take on him given his criticism on the use of interrogation techniques. >> i think he'll get a knew criticisms from the left but these will be from democrats who don't want to see president obama's nomination defeated. and br
barack obama since he got re-elected. that's the problem of the administration. they have to put forward an economic plan that goes beyond this kind of blood lust to raise tacks on rich people and small businesses. think about this. we have one of the highest, second highest corporate tax rate in the world. so when joe talks about all of this money that the companies have that they could invest in the country, they are not doing it because of our tax structure and the way that the tax structure works across the globe. look what he just said on small businesses, he raised taxes to pay for obamacare and raised the taxes in the fiscal cliff and he wants to raise them further in order to get an increase in the debt limit. he has taken the high tax rate on corporations and coupling that with the catastrophic increases on the small businesses. this is not a recipe to create any jobs. it's a recipe to go back into a recession. >> eric: what do you think will happen? matt? >> i hope the president can turn this economy around. we are all rooting for our economy. but his policies are a disaffer an
their funds. the obama administration has often stepped in, either directly funding the organization itself or threatening to withhold federal funding from the states unless they reverse their decisions. >> every time we defund on the state level the president steps in and says over my dead body. >> shannon: joining us to talk about this, congress woman marsha blackburn. she has reintroduced a bill that would block federal funding to planned parenthood under title nine. thank you for joining us today. >> good to be with you. >> shannon: excuse me, title 10. what is title 10. >> part of the 1970 act done through hhs and what they do is direct funding for women's health services. what has happened through the years is planned parenthood has moved to abortion services and, indeed, this past year, shannon, they got $542 million from the federal government. that is taxpayer dollars. they did 335,000 abortions and that is one abortion every 94 seconds. and we are just saying look, you know, you you do not need to be using this money, money is fungible and we need to cut federal funds going to pla
been, those two worlds. >> when you look at what the obama administration did for wall street, we have a story about the bailouts and what egregious handout they were and how they are still going on. the bank secretly got billions and billions in secret loans from the feds, basically zero percent interest rate, didn't tell their shareholders that. their ceos were busy buying and selling stocks, so there's a question of insider trading that was going on off the bailout, and none of those people have been touched or looked at. so, you know, wall street got this huge handout, and yet during the election they came out 5-1 in terms of financial contributions against obama. there's a real disconnect in terms of their own world view. if this has been a republican administration, they would have been ecstatic. there's politics going on here as well. >> we were talking about this in the break, we played the ad aig has been running on the air, which is thank you, america, thank you, america, thank you, america. some sort of brand management, or attempt thereof, but the fact they are engaged in t
in the bush administration. now he's being nominated by the obama administration. i think it's an opportunity for us all to raise hell about the issue and demand that the senate in the confirmation hearings ask him questions about the program. >> cenk: i suspect senator widen will have some objections. i suspect, and then we'll be done. we'll get massively outvoted. what does that tell us about the state of the democratic party when the democratic president takes a guy considered so loathsome that he could not nominate to be head of the c.i.a. in 2009 because of torture-related issues, now nominates him and will get the democratic party to go along with it. >> i think it's an indication of why partisan politics has its limitations and why it's important that people who care fundfundamentalfundamentally about issues be and we should have learned from the lgbt community there is one way that government responds, that is pressure. when people talked to me and said please tell obama this, please tell obama that. the notion that we have that kind of power is only a little bit misleading, but on th
and not the summer as discussed by the obama administration that afghan forces will take the lead in all of their country and u.s. troops will step back in the advising and assisting role. >> our forces are still in harm's way and make no mistake. our path is clear and we are moving forward. >> because after a decade of war, the nation we need to rebuild is our own. >> president obama met with hamid karzai. he awaits recommendation from the pentagon and commanders on the ground as to the kind of military footprint they will need in afghanistan after 2014. and the white house has left open the possibility that the whoit white will leave troops there. nominees for security of state john kerry and chuck hagel. they are likely to favor a faster withdrawal of u.s. troops. republicans are urging caution and say we need to prevent al-qaida from moving back in afghanistan. >> they moved to north africa and moving back would not be difficult if we had a vacuum. we need to make sure the troops we train there are capable of filling the vacume of the u.s. forces when they leave. >> president obama a
, chuck. i think you're right. a lot of obama care is administrative. it is just the grinding details of administrative government. >> building it essentially. >> but the other thing is the republicans are going to try to attack medicaid, chris, and medicare, but medicaid in particular. if they drain and slash funding for medicaid in the regular budget negotiations that chuck is talking about, that will make implementing obama care that much harder because a lot of the money to expand coverage for the uninsured comes from medicaid. >> okay. i think immigration is my biggie for this year. >> that's the legacy thing for him. >> that's easy to do. >> i think so, too. i have never understood why it's so hard to do immigration. >> but it is now easy to do. now it's easy. that's right. now it's easier. look, deals don't get done in washington unless there is political benefit for both sides. >> right. >> and on immigration republicans know they have to get it done. it will get done. that's the easiest thing on the president's agenda. >> let them put the teeth in it, get the issue off their

've got to do it themselves. >> there's a new article and it asks this question, the obama administration says it is considering leaving no troops in afghanistan after december 2014. but is it really? or is it just decreasing expectations and using the threat as a pressure tactic ahead of president obama's meeting with afghan president hamid karzai? do you think that's what's going on? >> i think there's some gamesmanship in that regard but most people in the administration frankly most people, think it's wise to keep some troops there. the issue will come down to mission. do you want to just keep troops who will do a counter terrorism mission, is that going to be okay with the afghans? or will they want that to be but tresed by some sort of training or budget support? at this point, the afghan military is going to cost more money than the country has to spend. so i think very high on karzai's agenda is continuation of security assistance in the form of budget support. >> and let's look at the possible scenario of leaving afghanistan completely after 2014. what would we be leaving behind?

we have a problem, mr. president with all due respect. it's clear the obama administration is spending an enormous amount of one agency that specializes on n. abortion. this in a time when the national debt is crushing the american people. so that's wrong on many levels. we need a congressional investigation into the funding of planned parenthood. since the senate is controlled by democrats, we don't expect that body to cooperate in any investigation. we are asking members of the house to take a hard look at what could be, what could be a gross violation of federal law. we will let you know what congress people step up and agree to do that. and that's the memo. top story tonight opposing point of view with us christina page author of the book how the pro-choice movement saved america? so where am i going wrong here, ms. page? >> you are going wrong on accounting. you are going wrong the -- your assumptions of where this money is being spent. planned parenthood is a healthcare provider. a leading healthcare provider and provides primary healthcare services to millions of ame

that the obama administration might stop the easy sale of the scariest guns to the scariest people has aroused the slippery slope crowd. these cousins of the grassy knoll folks believe that any limit on the wide open market for guns and ammo threatens their own hardware. any reasonable action by the american people to stop the carrage is to these paranoids the first unfaltering step to mass confiscation of everything from shoth guns to daisy rifles. well, tonight we let you hear from the craziest of the crazies. my question, are the regular gun owners of this country, the people who go out and hunt in hunting season, the people who shoot skeet or simply like to pack their own bullets, regular gun enthusiasts, are they going to listen to these nut cases or joe biden when he offers proposals next week on background checks and high capacity magazines? who are the people that are going to decide this issue? i mean the gun owners going to go with, the wild bunch or the town posse? david corn is you what bureau chief for "mother jones." joy reid is managing editor of the grio. most are msnbc analyst
institute says the obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last fiscal year and that amount, get this, is more than the budgets than all other federal law enforcement agencies combined. nonpartisan think tank focuses on global immigration issues and the report found that u.s. government has spent more than $187 billion on immigration enforcement laws since 1986 and since then, there have been more immigration-related criminal prosecutions than cases generated by the justice department. npi concludes because of the money spent the actions taken and the case volume, it is fair to say the obama administration has made immigration enforcement its highest criminal law enforcement priority. >>> the administration's economic priority right now is the raising of the debt ceiling. u.s. has gotta lift it by the end of february or early march or else it will default on its fiscal obligations. this should be a routine exercise but republicans once again are threatening to hold the debt limit increase hostage in exchange for spending cuts which happened back in august of
here? >> look, i think this is an excuse and think the obama administration which wanted to find a way not to keep our troops in iraq, wants to find a way not to keep our troops in afghanistan. i think this is a guaranty for a taliban takeover, resurgence of al qaeda, the sacrifice of everything our troops have won for us over there and as i say, i think this is a question of getting some good negotiators. we could have resolved that program in iraq if we had the will and tenacity to do so. we can do it here in afghanistan as as well. i think it is less a question of what hamid karzai wants but more a question of what barack obama wants or doesn't want. jenna: that is a big question. we heard from general allen reports that he had suggested to the pentagon upwards of wanting 20,000 troops to remain in the country after the end of 2014. what do you think about the fact that this debate, this negotiation, this floating of the idea of the zero option, is happening very much in the public sphere? that we're talking about it now, that it is out in the open rather than behind closed doors, h
